Houston –Congressman Ted Poe recently kicked off his community roundtable program in Spring Branch to hear directly from local leaders on issues he can assist with on a federal level.

The Spring Branch Roundtable was Congressman Poe’s first of several roundtable meetings throughout his Congressional District. Attendees included representatives from local Super Neighborhoods, TIRZ 17, Spring Branch Management District, Memorial Assistance Ministries as well as concerned residents and law enforcement. The discussion gave Congressman Poe and his staff many ideas to consider for future legislation and projects.

Much of the discussion centered on flooding and drainage assistance and community services.  Other topics of interest included education and public safety. Congressman Poe plans to have these meetings throughout his district over the next several months.

“I’m proud to be in my childhood home of Spring Branch for our first of many roundtables,” said Representative Poe. “There’s no better way to set community priorities and come up with effective solutions. I appreciate the attendees’ feedback and encourage all TX-2 constituents to contact my office anytime with their thoughts and ideas.”

Congressman Ted Poe represents the Second Congressional District of Texas, which includes the areas of Spring Branch, Timbergrove and Lazybrook as well as Memorial Park, Montrose, portions of the Houston Heights as well as suburban Northern Harris County. He is a senior member of the Judiciary Committee and Foreign Affairs Committee where he serves as Chairman of the Terrorism Subcommittee.
